If I understand correctly, the two changes are creating context, which requires a certain minimum version of xgettext, and then using the context in the GtkBuilder ui files, which requires a minimum version of Gtk+. The latter was added in 5f3729b8, in July 2007. git describe says that's GTK_2_11_5-50-g5f3729b, so it was released in Gtk-2.12, so that part's OK. That also implies tat the context function has also been in gettext for at least as long, so that shouldn't be a worry, either.

There’s another consideration, though: You need to see if C or Scheme code is affected. C isn’t much of a problem, just change gettext() to pgettext() and add the context string. The Guile gettext implementation doesn’t seem to include pgettext(), so that might be a problem.
